Acassuso House

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
The house is designed for an urban plot in the town of Acassuso, in a residential neighborhood, predominated by single-family homes and where the presence of ancient trees provides lush vegetation that characterizes the area.
The clients are a couple, with two adult daughters. They are both professionals, sensitive people, and lovers of travel and nature.
As it is a corner lot, with two regulatory setbacks, the buildable area was small to accommodate the entire program of needs and, in turn, leave a large outdoor space as the clients would have wanted. As a result, the project strategy consisted of generating a fragmentation of the volume by incorporating a patio, a terrace, and a semi-covered space so that all the spaces of the house were in close relation to the vegetation of the exterior spaces. In this way, we can use the setback areas as allies to generate this feeling of permeability and shelter that we were seeking.
